Happy Spring…This is my other attempt to blog. It’s been hard but it’s getting easier. Ben is now almost 16 months and a very active toddler. He sleeps well, eats well and is generally a happy kid. My job is now a lot less demanding so I have a few hours every night to craft…what a bliss I tell ya. But, it is still hard to take good photographs of my crafts since Ben would try to snatch my camera with gusto.
Case in point, I try to snap a few pics of him wearing a simple applique shirt that I whipped up a few nights ago, not easy. I have to coax him with watering can. The whole thing takes 20 minutes and just one decent photo
It’s very easy and fun, I plan to whip up a few more applique shirts for this dude.
I basically use Heat-n-Bond (some bloggers suggested the purple package but I wasn’t understanding what they were saying so i got the red package which works just fine though the package say if purple one is better if you want to add stitches) and fuse it to a fabric. cut the pattern out of the fabric, peel the fusible and attach it to the shirt. I then stitch the perimeter all around using regular straight stitch and embroider the swirl with split stitch and voila it is done.
